Renewables not Gas for your council area!
Across NSW, local community members are calling on our councils to upgrade from polluting gas to clean renewable energy. Gas has long been promoted as the clean alternative to electricity – by the gas industry. The truth is that methane is up to 84% more polluting to the climate than carbon dioxide created by coal power in the short term.
Local governments in Victoria and NSW have already shown inspiring leadership in reducing climate pollution from burning gas, protecting communities. The City of Canterbury Bankstown is taking steps to stop new gas connections. And the City of Moreland has committed to phase out gas in all Council buildings.
Will you make your local area a better, healthier place? Sign or start a petition in your local area to call on your council to:
• Ban new gas connections across the municipality,
• Phase out gas in all Council infrastructure, and
• Write to the state Energy Minister calling for a fast track out of gas use and into renewables

Renewables not Gas for the The Hills areaGas is a dangerous, polluting fossil fuel. It releases greenhouse gasses that contribute to the horrific bushfires and raging floods we’ve seen devastate communities across the country in recent years. And it isn’t just a disaster for our climate. It’s also bad for our health. Public health experts are concerned about the health risks of cooking with gas in our homes, which can have a similar impact on childhood asthma as living with cigarette smoke. But the good news is that some local councils around the country are bowing to community pressure and taking matters into their own hands - promising to end new gas connections, and help people with the cost of switching to electricity and renewables. And with enough pressure from the community, our local council could join this movement today!40 of 100 SignaturesCreated by KRIS NEEDHAM
